Retired Members

We provide ongoing communication and support to retired sworn South Australia Police officers.


All retired sworn members are automatically members of SA Police Legacy.

  • You can donate through Police Super – just give them a call and let them know the fortnightly amount you would like to donate.
  • You can make regular donations via bank transfer.
  • You can donate via our donation page.

“When Police Legacy was introduced (over 30 years ago) serving members could allocate 50 cents per pay via Police Credit Union deductions. Many joined and underpinned the financial foundation of the organisation. Time has moved on and the contribution has increased with inflation. It is still a cheap and effective way to protect your family, and other families within the police profession. As a founding member one wishes to be assured funds provided do make a difference. 

At a recent gathering I was aware of a legatee being present. I inquired of the experience SA Police Legacy had provided. The legatee was praiseworthy of SA Police Legacy and advised of having received assistance over the years which included, in a financial sense; education expenses including laptop computers replaced regularly, driving school expenses, and financial grants including assistance with exchange student costs with a lengthy European stay. Personal matters included recognition at significant times and anniversaries. Having a resource for personal consultation was also appreciated. I was pleased to receive this information which confirmed to me that my funds were well placed.”
